Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Romans 10:5-10.


Romans 10:8

_ _ But what saith it? It saith — continuing the quotation from Deuteronomy 30:14.

_ _ The word is nigh thee — easily accessible.

_ _ in thy mouth — when thou confessest Him.

_ _ and in thine heart — when thou believest on Him. Though it is of the law which Moses more immediately speaks in the passage quoted, yet it is of the law as Israel shall be brought to look upon it when the Lord their God shall circumcise their heart “to love the Lord their God with all their heart” (Romans 10:6); and thus, in applying it, the apostle (as Olshausen truly observes) is not merely appropriating the language of Moses, but keeping in the line of his deeper thought.

_ _ that is, the word of faith, which we preach — that is, the word which men have to believe for salvation (compare 1 Timothy 4:6).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Romans 10:1-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Romans 10:8

But what saith he — Moses. Even these words, so remarkably applicable to the subject before us. All is done ready to thy hand. The word is nigh thee — Within thy reach; easy to be understood, remembered, practised. This is eminently true of the word of faith — The gospel. Which we preach — The sum of which is, If thy heart believe in Christ, and thy life confess him, thou shalt be saved.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Romans 10:8

(5) But what saith it? The (f) word is nigh thee, [even] in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;

(5) Calling comes by the word preached.

(f) By "word", Moses understood the law which the Lord proclaimed with his own voice: and Paul applied it to the preaching of the Gospel, which was the perfection of the law.
